Edmonton Community Feature: The Best of Cy Becker
If you’re looking for the perfect community for your family, it’s hard to beat Cy Becker. Set in the northeast part of Edmonton with easy access to the Anthony Henday, this lovely community has a dazzling array of things to offer. We think that once you learn more about it, you’ll want to make Cy Becker your home.
Home Choices for Families and More
In Cy Becker, Sterling offers a variety of home styles to suit the needs of all types of families. If you’re looking for a traditional two-storey home, you can choose the convenience of a front-attached home or the picturesque look of a laned home. Both styles offer you the privacy and space you’re looking for in a home.
Those looking to save some money or earn some investment income often look to duplex style homes. These are two side-by-side homes that are slightly more affordable because they share some of the exterior materials. Inside, though, they have the look and feel of any other modern home, with an open-concept floor plan downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs.
Young families and retired couples often choose a townhome because they’re easier to manage and have the most affordable price. Because you can make use of all of the amenities in the community, you don’t feel like you’re missing out by not having a big backyard.
The All-Seasons Park
The big attraction in Cy Becker is the all-seasons park, which is unlike the parks in any other community in Edmonton. When the weather is nice, you can take the kids to the playground area. Pack a picnic lunch because they won’t want to go home. Fortunately, there are picnic tables available. There’s also a leisure rink where they can ride bicycles or roller skate. In the hot summers, the whole family can cool off at the spray park.
The fun doesn’t stop once the snowflakes start to fall. Once it’s cold enough, the bike riding area transforms into a skating rink. You’ll love not having to get in the car to go skating this winter. There’s also a great hill for tobogganing. It’s clear that this is a great location for families who love to play outside.
Not in the mood to play outside? That’s okay. You can get some exercise at either of the nearby recreation centres – Clareview Recreation Centre and Londonderry Recreation Centre. Both offer fitness machines and classes, and there’s also a pool where you could take the kids swimming.
You also won’t have to go far to find any of the other little things that make life easier. Save-On Foods and Shoppers Drug Mart are just a few minutes’ drive away, and there’s also banks, gas stations, and restaurants in the area. Manning Town Centre offers even more options.
A community like this is sure to attract families, so it isn’t surprising to learn that there are schools nearby. Many kids in the Cy Becker neighbourhood attend the local public schools, but there are also options for families who want a Catholic school experience for their children. If you’re looking for something special for your child, consider checking out all of the area schools. Many of the new schools are not yet full, so you can apply to have your child attend a school that’s a bit further away if they have something unique that your child needs.
An Easy Commute
No matter where you work, Cy Becker’s convenient location means you’ll have an easy commute. The drive to the downtown area is less than 25 minutes, while the drive to the Canadian Forces base is only 16 minutes. And while the community is in the northeast part of the city and “far” from the airport, the drive to that area is only about 40 minutes. Of course, plenty of Cy Becker’s residents work even closer to home, as teachers in the schools or other professionals in the area.
Those who prefer to take public transportation also have some options, particularly if you’re heading downtown. There are options available that will get you to the city in about an hour. It’s a good way to get some work done while you commute.
With affordable home options and unique amenities like the all-seasons park, it’s clear why Cy Becker is a favourite among families. Lots in this neighbourhood won’t last long, so if you think this might be the place for you, it’s smart to contact an Area Manager today. Get started building the life you’ve been dreaming about.
